2014 International Boat Shows
The world tradeshow premier of the X-Jetpack at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in January 2014 kicked off our world tour. Next stop was Dubai in all of its unbelievable surroundings. Cartagena Columbia next, awesome city and reception for South America. Frazier and Jerry did the boat show in Poland and got some training in despite it being five degrees. Next stop was Athens “Show Me!” extreme sports show together with Lignos with demo flights in the cold ocean. This week the X-Jetpack makes its jetset debut at the Top Marques show in Monaco together with the EAMS Tender Toys collection.
Hydro Sport Factory
We met our competition in the US and Europe, saw their workshops. We did some business with them and talked to other people that bought the expensive machines, and others that put money down on products and never received them. In virtually every aspect we saw the need for improvement. The biggest was manufacturing, both of the ‘market leaders” had never built anything before. We knew from experience that the key to controlling and building the world’s best hydro sport equipment was our own manufacturing facility. For 2014 we have just moved into our own 1200 square meter factory. All of our assembly and in-house testing takes place here. We take our factories seriously and we have invested in the production facility that can grow with us. We control the process and the way of jetpacks and other products are put together. We build hydro products to last and sport gear that is fun to use. One of our competitors ships you a box of parts, a sort of “build-it-yourself” hydro kit. We believe in delivery a product that is as ready to go as possible. Check out our assembly page to see how fast it all goes together.
Sport Ready, Performance Capable
1The smoothest hydro jet channels availableWe engineered our tough power channels from the back of the jet ski, up, to deliver maximum water thrust. Smooth sand-cast Y divider and dual over the shoulder concentrator nozzles keep the water flowing fast and furious. No sharp angle or tight corners to generate turbulence. This means more power from your jet ski, without cavitation! You get all the power and more performance for less fuel consumption. Of course power means nothing without control. Each nozzle has two full complement rows of 6mm engineering polymer precision bearings that are sealed with o-rings. The bearings control the thrust and let you turn as smooth as silk.
2Torsion bar steering balanceThe required steering effort is very low in the X-Jetpack. The best flight control comes with the assistance of the torsion bar, balancing the forces between the two arms and dampening the turning over-reactions. We settled on the solid nylon bar that is nearly bulletproof. Go ahead and lift up our jetpack by the torsion bar, it can take it.
3Floatation face up! We built the obvious, a jetpack with floatation balanced in the frontSeems like the most obvious thing, flotation positioning to help orient the user face up in the water. We build it into every model. Safety first and a more comfortable learning experience for the first time user. Fall into the water and you pop back up, face up, to the surface in less that two seconds.
4Ease of control, free moving ball bearings in the steering nozzlesThe exclusive, innovative X-Jetpacks design pivots smoothly on a central stainless steel axle, nothing to pull on your arms when the tether hose gets tight or a wave hits the watercraft. Super smooth turning arms react when you move. Allowing you to stay in the air longer with less effort. Our torsion bar keeps the balance right.
5Open, forward looking designThe wider placement of the arms gives an open feeling to you flight over water. Space to move, space to see. The wide roll-bar protects you from bumps and knocks while waiting in the water and tilts backwards to allow you to tilt your head back and see forward when taxiing at takeoff.
6Revolutionary Saddle design stabilizes your body naturally without effortOur pilot feedback confirms that the X-Jetpacks Saddle is one of the biggest advancements in the complete history of jetpacks. And we mean all the way back to the 1960′s! 40 percent of your body weight is in your legs, Keeping your legs still without effort is the key. Our design does this in the most natural way possible. The concave design give you something to grip onto. Natural control and pendulum swing dampening.

Bolts on to Jet Ski
We turn your high performance watercraft into a jetpack powerplant with a simple to install conversion kit. You get the advantages of a locally serviced and supported watercraft with the ability for dual use with a short conversion time. Our hard anodized aluminum marine grade couplings allow for quick painless connecting and disconnecting when trailering. Our exclusive design silicon high pressure 180 degree re-direct hose allows the system to absorb the shocks of water acceleration or light collisions without transferring the shock to your water craft hull. The flexible connection with high tensile linkage allows for a lightweight, compact, abrasion resistant solution for maximum power redirection. Shown above with venturi adapter for SeaDoo models, additional adapters available for Yamaha and Kawasaki four stroke models.
